Where would we be without the support of the local business community? We're so grateful to our friends at TCI of NY for their recent generosity. The company, which recycles, disposes of and repairs transformers and other oil-filled electrical equipment, made a donation of $1,000 to Hope Full Life Center so we can purchase fresh fruits and veggies for our food assistance program, Helping Harvest.
Finding low-cost sources of fresh produce is difficult for our little charity, yet we believe providing it for low-income families in our community is part of our mission. If Helping Harvest can't offer fruit and veggies it often means the people we serve go without and don't get the critical nutrition they need.
Hope Full Life Center is the proud recipient of $500 from the Stewart’s Holiday Match. During the 2014 holiday season, Stewart’s customers generously donated more than $770,000 to the Holiday Match program, which doubled to more than $1.5 million with support from the beloved convenience store chain. The funds were divided among 1,600 local charities.
The Center will use the money to purchase food for Helping Harvest, Hope Full Life Center’s food assistance program for the needy. The program feeds nearly 1,000 people in our community, including many children.
THANK YOU Stewart's Shops and patrons for your kind support of our work to defeat hunger in our community.
